Am I a Candidate for LASIK?

The only way to be sure that you qualify for LASIK surgery is to visit one of our highly qualified surgeons and have an eye examination. However, there are a few general requirements: 
 
* You should be at least 18 years old - this ensures that the eye has fully developed properly 
* Your vision must be stable for at least one year prior to surgery 
* You must have gone one year without an eye infection or injury 
* You must not suffer from an autoimmune disorder, such as Lupus 
* You must have no history of herpes infection in the eye - LASIK may induce a recurrence 
* There must be no scarring on the cornea 
* You must understand the risks involved with LASIK surgery and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome 
* You should not be pregnant or nursing at the time of surgery -- hormones cause tissue fluctuations within the eye, changing the refractive error 
* If you have a history of dry eyes treatment may be needed before LASIK can be performed. 
 

Am I a Candidate for PRK?

PRK is often indicated for patients who are not good candidates for LASIK. This includes: 
 
* Patients with thin corneas 
* Patients with other corneal irregularities that make LASIK inadvisable
